There’s a lot to do ahead of WCQ – Andre Ayew


Andre Ayew has admitted that the Black Stars have to improve before the 2022 Fifa World Cup qualifiers.

The four-time African champions failed to impress in two high-profile international friendlies in the June break.

They lost 1-0 against Morocco before settling for a dull 0-0 draw against Ivory Coast last weekend.

Ghana were using the friendlies as part of their preparations for the qualifiers scheduled to start in September. The results have sparked concerns about the readiness of the team for the all-important games.

Charles Akonnor’s side are in group G alongside Zimbabwe, Ethiopia and South Africa.

Ayew took to social media to say that there is still more work to be done moving forward.

“Two good games vs two top teams. A lot of encouraging stuff, but still more work to do to be ready for the WCQ in September, thanks for your support, we keep going.”

Ayew will now shift his focus to finding a new club after leaving Swansea City earlier this month. On the 29th of May, the Jack Army lost 2-0 against Brentford in the final of the promotion play-offs which resulted in the 31-year-old deciding to leave the club as he looks to return to playing top-flight football.

Marcelo Bielsa (who is now with Leeds United), coached the midfielder at French side Olympique Marseille and it is believed that the Argentine is interested in bringing Ayew to Elland Road for the 2021/22 campaign.

Ayew scored 17 and assisted four goals in 46 appearances in the Championship this past season.
